African Dreams Guest House
Ranked #26 of 54 Camps Bay B&B and Inns
Reviewed 23 February 2012

We stayed in the Elephant Room for 2 stints, one of 4 days, one of 5 and would recommend it to anyone.... Camps Bay is lovely although can be a bit windy especially higher up. However, the guest house itself has great views over the bay from both the rooms and the pool... It was a great spot to unwind after a day's sightseeing. As other reviews here say, Fanie and Jeanette are spectularly helpful and nice people and really couldn't do enough for us (even gave us a lift into town to turn up for a trip when our taxi didn't arrive on time). Even before we got there, Fanie was acting as our unofficial tour guide, helping on further accomodation and trips/itinerary etc.
Definitely recommended...

Room Tip: Elephant room is a nice one next to the pool. Their penthouse room I think was called the Lion room...

We stayed at this GH for 4 nights and didn't want to leave !!! Fanie and Jeanette are great people !! They let us feel like we were home and were willing to help us at anytime ! They take the time to advise you and are just the kindest people we've ever met !
The room (Lion's Den) was fabulous with amazing view on Camps Bay and the sunset!!
The breakfasts were always very good with plenty of food! I would recommand this place to anyone who would like to feel at home and to have a friendly stay !! I will definitely go back there next time !! Thank you again so much for everything you did to make our stay unforgettable ! Charlotte and Julien from France

African dreams guest house was a kind of guest house we wanted. It has sensational view, clear- blue pool & good location!! You can have your silence but at the same time it takes less than 5 min to campsbay.
We did ' guesthouse- hoping', but this was definitely the best one & only one we want to stay again. Owner of the guesthouse were full of information about the town & full of hearts. They are really friendly and always willing to help you.
I would recommend to friends& family !!!

The rooms are beautifully situated with a GREAT view of the Ocean. You can see the ocean from your bed. Great value and very very friendly and helpful hosts. We felt very welcome - and they went out of their way to provide us a simple dinner when we were unable to go out one evening.
Highly recommend.

Room Tip: Call the owners directly - and ask for the Leopard room.

The door opened and we were greeted with: "you must be..and you must be...come in. How about a cup of tea?" We enter the house and it's clear that we are in someone's home; and we are made to feel totally comfortable with that. Fanie and Jeanette treat you like old friends, without compromising service. The view is outstanding. It's Camps Bay, we expected that, but still. Breakfast on the terrace with views to the distance ocean horizon was a great way to start the day - eggs cooked how you like it (thanks Jeanette). Fanie would regularly ask about our itinerary and was always happy to make suggestions or give advice.
In fairness, not everything was tip-top. Our bathroom needed some attention, but when we had a problem, it was taken care: no problem. One negative for me: mattress too hard and pillows not the right size (but no negative points for the latter)
THe house is in walking distance to Camps Bay, but if you're doing an evening, drive or grab a cab.
We had the chance to visit them one more time before we flew out and it was like seeing old friends.
Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Choose what you need. They're all OK
